Both Down Both Texas »nd Rice have fallen sadly short of their 1954 performance, when the two swept to a deadlock in a conference race that stayed air-tight through the final games.

Each team has a star sophomore center, and the face-to-face meelr Ing of TCU'3 Dick O'Neal (6-foot-7> and SMU's Jim Krebs (6-foot-8) has added interest to the game. O'Neal leads the circuit scaring with 355 points in 13 games, compared to 287 for Krebs In 14 games.

The AAU aid he could appear on the program but made no mention of accepting gifts, and at the end of the show, Ralph Edwards, who made the presentation, observed that if the AAU ruled that Richards could not accept the car, perhaps it could be donated to his church.
